Here is a list of the sessions related to planetary habitability that will be presented in the AGU Fall meeting 2012, from December 3 to 7, 2012 in San Francisco, California. These sessions include terrestrial, Solar System, and exoplanets habitability. The best way to explore the individual presentations is to go to the program planner and search for the name or number of the session. There are many other relevant sessions too about the terrestrial deep biosphere and the interactions of past or future climate change with life. Note that scattered among other sessions are more presentations about habitability or astrobiology.
